Caicos to Puerto Plata, DR

Looking to cruise from turks and caicos to puerto plata dr in mid june and then on to puerto rico. I was wondering what kind of seas i should expect in this area over this period of time. I have plenty of time to wait for weather windows, just wanted to get a general idea from all who have made this crossing in the past. Thanks in advance.

See my avatar for the conditions we had, glassy. We waited for a forecast where we could fly the spinnaker as much as possible and that is what we got.

It be nice if you could hold out for a front from the NW to come through, gotta be quick though, the NW wind portion doesn't last long. We rode one from Cat Island all the way to TCI.

I think that time of year you should expect trades from the SE but forecasts are usually wrong.

Go to Ocean World or Luperon not the commercial port, it sucks!!!
Moderators are cool.
